Email to Governor Chris Christie

I sent the following email via online form to Governor Chris Christie today alerting him to what I feel is a serious shortcoming in the State of New Jersey:

Imagine our surprise a week ago when we drove from PA into NJ on route 78 and there was no “Welcome to NJ” sign!

We particularly noticed this because we were coming home from a 2,000+ mile drive to South Carolina, and having taken photos of all the “Welcome To Our State” signs, thought it would be cute to bag a shot of the NJ sign for the end of our vacation photo album. Oh well.

Now in our case it really wasn’t necessary to welcome my husband and me to NJ, after all we live here in Edison. However, given the amount of revenue tourism brings into NJ, I would recommend putting up a sign on route 78 and all NJ borders to make incoming tourists feel that NJ really cares about them.

If by some chance, there is usually a sign in that location but it had just been knocked down by a passing truck, and a replacement sign put up this week, please disregard this message.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.


PS I only chose category: Economic Growth, sub-topic: Small Business because I thought it was a better fit than Transportation, not because it was a good fit.

The form submission was acknowledged with

Thank you for contacting me.
As Governor, I welcome input from those throughout the Garden State and beyond who are eager to share with me their thoughts, concerns, questions, and ideas. My staff and I will endeavor to be as responsive as possible to the many people using this electronic means of communication, as well as to those who, through letters and phone calls, contact my office.
Again, I appreciate your taking the time to write to me.
Sincerely yours,

Chris Christie

Isn't it great living in a Democracy!

There is no option for Dr. and Dr. I find this a serious shortcoming.

There's no Reverend and Dr. either, or Reverend and Mrs. for that matter. Actually, it appears from the list that NJ is of the opinion that all clergy are celibate.

They also don't have Mr. and Mr. or Mrs. and Mrs. But I suppose that's not yet legal in NJ. Maybe they need a multiple column selector.
